TRIBUNPONTIANAK.CO.ID, TANJUNG REDEB – Pemkab Berau began forming an Online Single Submision Task Force (OSG) to improve public services. OSS is an Electronic Integrated Integrated Business Licensing service (PBTSE).

OSS is a mandatory program set by the central government to be implemented by the regional government. Through this OSS, business licensing services that apply in all Ministries, Institutions and Regional Governments throughout Indonesia can be done through the internet network, and are claimed to provide convenience and reduce the potential for abuse of authority and fraud.

Anwar, Assistant I for Government Affairs at the Berau Regency Secretariat, said that in the digital era like now, local governments are required to predict the use of information technology-based services.

“Imitate Gojek, Grab, Traveloka and other service applications, they excel because of innovation and technology-based so they can defeat big retailers. In the field of governance, it should also start to change the paradigm, so that our competitiveness and performance will be more effective, “he said on Tuesday (10/10/2018).

According to him, changes made by the government must keep up with the times. Especially at this time, the millennial generation began to dominate the population, the use of technology to accelerate services became a necessity.

“The change is in a better direction, we also have to change the manual methods. Because now people also access services from the private sector through information technology, “he said again.

Meanwhile, Datau Kesuma, Head of the One Stop Integrated Services and Investment Service (DPMPTSP) Berau said, through this OSS, the Berau community could arrange location permits, environmental permits and building permits. “The regulation already exists, just add a few articles,” he said.

DPMPTSP said Datu Kesuma will coordinate with the Environmental and Hygiene Service, Transportation Agency, Fisheries Service, Health Office, Tourism Agency and other OPDs. All of these licenses will later be served in this OSS.

Berau Regency Government through DPMPTSP serves dozens of 92 types of licenses. OSS will provide convenience for the community in its management. The final target is that the potential income obtained from licensing will also increase as a regional income hitch.
